Rome, Dec. 22.—An official report)
states that in the Giudicaria Valley

course of the fighting the enemy's
aeroplanes went up and attacked our
aircraft. They were forced to retreat,
however.
In the Terragnole Valley detachments of the enemy's Infantry at-i
tempted to approach our positions. |
By counter" attacks, made by our
force, they were repulsed and forced
to retreat, leaving some prisoners in
our hands.
In the Sugana Valley our artillery
fired on the railway station at Le-
lico where I lie movpir-enls of troops
were reported.  '
On the Asiago Plateau the enemy's
aeroplanes were forced to land. A
pilot was captured'.
On tbe rest of the front there

Fred Peters, '■■'. ('. citj solicitor,
who has received word from England of the promotion of his eldest
son t0 an important command in the
navy, has also received the information lhat Gerald, who is now at i
the front, has been fighting in the |

A letter received from Mrs. Peters,
who Is now in England, says that
Gerald volunteered for the isolation

of the German lines. In these the., remain three days and three nights at
a  stretch.  No fires  are  lighted nor
worrying as to the possible fate of
the British and French expeditionary
forces operating north from Saloniki

of operations by Dr. W. D. Sharpe,
of Brampton, Out., who has just

are any comforts available. He said | >•  that  the  expeditionary  forces  in
Greece, together with the Canadian
hospital and all Allied civilians who
may be around Saloniki, are absolutely safe, and it is only a most overwhelming force which could -ever
hope to drive the British back to the
sea coast, and that even there the
enemy would find such an obstacle
in the Britisli fleet that it would be
a hopeless task to attempt to drive
the Allies into the sea. The conformation of the land to the north of
Saloniki gives this confidence to Dr.
Sharpe.
"In the Vardar Valley there are
huge stretches of marsh," he stated,
"back of that are the highlands. Now
it only remains for the British and
French to make a successful crossing
of Iho marshes nnd to establish
themselves In the highlands to make
11 almost Impossible for anything but
an overwhelming force to follov
them, and as yet the enemy haven't
such a force available. There are
three bridges crossing the marsh, and
Ihe British and French are In control
of these. The highlands are sufficiently far from Saloniki to give
ihe Allies plenty of territory in whlcw
lo mass a huge army for the advance
back Into Serbia and Bulgaria, but
1 don't think there Is much use of
them beginning the advance until
they have al li a il a half mlllllon men.
The Allies Replied Effectively To The
Firing From The
Enemy.
London, Dec. 22.—An official report states that during the last 24
hours there has been artillery activity in many positions along the front,
principally about Flrcourt, on both
sides of the I.abasse Canal and at
Ypres. Our artillery effectively replied in every instance,

ply. The Greek people don't wan!
fo fight at all, because they are not
a fighting race like the Bulgarians.
But the Greek army Is pro-German,
simply because it Is manned by Gorman officers, as is the Bulgarian
army. Except for German officers the
Bulgarian army would never have
fought with the Germans. Before the
war broke out, the people of Bulgaria -were rioting on the streets of
Sofia, asking to ligh\ with the Allies,
but the situation became hard to handle when German officers were placed
in charge of .the army from the field-
marshall down. No, I do not think
such a condition is apt to be repeated
in Greece, because the Greek people
are not fighters. They are holding
themselves at a price, trying to get
the most out of it without fighting." ;
British losses, Dr. Sharpe believes, I
cannot be great. When he left Ser-'
bia, the only object of the British and
French forces was to guard the lines
to enable the Serbian army to escape
into Albania and Montenegro. This
much was largely accomplished, to
the satisfaction of the Serbian offi- j
r-nls, who realized the difficulty of!
getting a large fighting army into the j
country upon so short a notice. Now,

but the purchasing officials, who placed government contracts, were in a

German Position Desperate.
Our armies would welcome e Herman offensive, which they feel fully
confident of being able to meet.
The only real argument supporting an early German western offensive is that the Germans are now in
such a desperate economic position
that they must make tremendous efforts to retrieve themselves. ^H

liberl elsi « ■ re. I don't think thej
(   ghl  to I lurdered  in  detail ob
scurely in Mexico, oi openly in wholesale on the high seas. I am not willing to get into a passion over an
infringement of our trade and then
al'ow American citizens to lose their
live-.- and' have it go by in frigid
silence. 1 think the United States
stands for something higher in the
world than mere trade and mere dollars. I don't want to see our citizens
wronged in their properties, but I
think we should also stand, and
above all, for morality and humanity
in the dealings of nations with each
other."
.lust a moment before, Senator
Lodge had said: "The body of an
Inherent child, floating dead on the
water, the victim of the destruction
of an unarmed vessel, is to me a more
poignant and a more tragic spectacle
than an unsold bale of cotton."
